Loud and skimpy with their portions
Calamari was about 7 rings old and rubbery with a ton of grape tomatoes and arugula in it!
Table next to us was a bunch of wild animals super loud I couldn’t have a decent conversation with my friend!
The waiter was super nice and the main course was great, but the noise level is too much and the prices are kind of high for what is available!

Another delicious dinner at Trama. The food is perfectly prepared and served. Our waiter, Andrew, was terrific - he did a great job taking care of us. I enjoyed the fluke with lemon risotto - a wow! My husband loved the steak Florentine. Wonderful desserts, too - Panna cotta and gelato - so yummy! Can't wait to go back!

Very disappointing. Quite crowded and noisy, wait staff was less than responsive to our needs. Worst of all, menu was quite limited and basic fare was unavailable. ( who ever heard of an italian restaurant that could not make spaghetti with clam sauce. Food was ok, but nothing to shout about.

Responded on October 10, 2021

Everything on our menu was available last evening. Our menus are available to view online before arrival. Spaghetti clam sauce is offered on our summer menu. We can not just make something if we do not have the ingredients in the building. During the fall, the clam dish is replaced with a meatball dish. One guest in your party raved about this, another complimented our red sauce. We also accommodated your change in party size. Yes, 7:00 on a Saturday is typically going to be a busy time.

We had been told to try Trama, and we are glad we did! Excellent food: eggplant parm appetizer, mushroom side, fluke entree, rigatoni, all delicious.
Service was very good, even with what seemed to be one inside waiter, but efficient bus staff. We will return to try other foods.

October 7, 2021. Date night with Tommy. Had a delicious pork chop and rigatoni dish. The bartender, Rob, was outstanding. The bread is amazing. The drinks, a little small meaning the glasses could be a little larger. But overall a 10+!!!

Everything was great! One small item of concern was the bread served was over toasted to almost being burnt. Otherwise, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Everything was great - food was exceptional, servers were kind and knowledgeable, and the ambience was nice as well. I went with a friend and we decided to share a few plates. The restaurant took note of that and brought out each course already divided. Had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back!

Food was good, but our outdoor table was very close to others and in front of a doorway. We were told that no other tables were available, but it was obvious that many were. It was very noisy and a bit claustrophobic.
